We are nature lovers who enjoy resort living. Before moving to Puerto Rico we lived in New York City where Carmen sang and studied in Julliard School of Music and Federico studied in Columbia University and worked for UBS Investment Bank. As of know we own and operate a billboard company in the Caribbean and love spending time with our new member, Catalina our 10month old daughter. We enjoy sports, surfing, walking in the beach, and nature seeking. We also enjoy classical music and breezy jazz nights.

Federico Hernandez purchased this villa in 2008

Is the best of two worlds. Resort living in the beach close to the capital city. Safety meets luxury at another level of entertaining atmosphere.

Recognized worldwide golf courses and unique beaches. Nature trails adjacent to our home. Also we never miss our weekly beach parties.

AMAZING TRIP!! LOVED THE HOME! ABSOLUTELY GORGEOUS LOCATION. FEDERICO WAS SO HELPFUL.

  • 5 of 5
My family spent spring break at this lovely home and every day felt like paradise. Federico provided so much information ahead of time that we felt completely at home as soon as we arrived. We rented cars at the airport and drove easily to the location. Federico met us upon arrival and took the time to show us through the house and also around the resort. We drove to the local grocery store for light shopping and took advantage of the several outstanding restaurants in town. The house is wonderful and so comfortable. The beach and pools were amazing! Absolutely gorgeous place and we hope to return again very soon. Federico will be our first call! Thank you for such a wonderful time!

BEST VACATION WE HAVE HAD IN YEARS!

  • 5 of 5
Federico and his wife where amazing hosts. They not only gave us recommendations of places to eat, visit and to travel directions they went out of their way to make sure that we were having a good time. They treated us like family. We called them from the airport and let them know when we would arrive. They met us at the house and showed us around the home then Federico took the time to give us a tour around Dorado Beach. We did not spend a lot of time at the house but when we did we really enjoyed it. One of the nice benefits is the sounds of nature that we do not hear in the winter in New England. The Coqui were loud but you knew you where in the Islands. We paid the weekly membership fee for the Dorado Beach club and really enjoyed all the amenities. We played tennis, golf, swam in the pools, used the water park and took a day trip to the rain forest. We would absolutely come back to this home again. My children had a delightful time sail boating at GoodWinds. The instructor was excellent and he let my kids steer the boat! Not only was it fun, it was also an educational ride. They learned how to steer and drive a boat, while seeing coral reef and jumping HUGE waves in the "Wave Playground." The experience was phenomenal and anyone who loves a great adventure or just likes to get a good tan, would love it here!!!

AN ALL AROUND UNIQUE EXPERIENCE

  • 5 of 5
This property is cozy enough to feel like-at-home, yet still gives you large open space between the kitchen, living room and dining room. Decor has a unique elegant taste. Beds and bedrooms of the perfect size and comfort. House keeping A+. Location is one of a kind inviting close-gated community that has everything you can imagine. From swimming pools, water parks, tennis courts, walking-running trails, surfing, kitesurfing to all the relaxing amenities found in the Ritz Carlton Hotel. There are 4 superb restaurants in the community at golf cart distance. Will come back next year!!

VERY DISAPPOINTED

  • 2 of 5
Federico made his home sound like a garden of Eden. From the moment we entered we had issues. Stovetop broken, two showers that flooded, construction during the time of our stay, kitchen missing basic amenities Etc Etc. He writes the villa has a private pool but in actuality it's a neighboring villas pool that's cloudy and dirty. The pictures shown in his description are very misleading. He seems to of changed the name of the villa from Escondida to Cataline in the last couple of days. A little fishy. I guess he figured I would write an HONEST review. My week cost me a lot of money. When I told him of my disappointments he had the audacity to compare the Ritz prices to his villa price and tell me I was irrational and expected too much. I was never expecting the Ritz but for the amount I paid I was expecting a heck of a lot more. I'm on vacation I paid a lot of money, yes I do expect something for that money. To Federico I will quote "these are just minor inconveniences." To me they were lies, broken promises and deceitful advertisement He rented his property to me, based on the information he provided. I should not have had to deal with any inconveniences. Then when I came home he had the nerve to of told me he would have switched me to an alternate property. He knew we were having issues and not once made us that offer during our stay. I found the property via VRBO yet he booked me privately avoiding VRBO. I see why now. Big mistake on my part. He promised me to include the dorado beach membership fee but at the last minute made up some crazy concocted story that "what he meant was to include the owners fee not the renters fee". Why am I paying the owners fee? I gave it one star because the grounds are beautiful. The second is because the island is beautiful. My family made the best of all the inconveniences. These issues were not the end of the world. But if your like me and my family, we treasure vacation time and shouldn't of had to deal with any of these issues before, during and after being home. My advice avoid this property if your a person or family who expects to get what you are promised. There are many properties to choose from skip over this one.

Owner's Response: This review is not a surprise to our family and team that make Ville Cataline a vacation destination for many and has been a 5 star vote for the last 3 years. We were waiting for this review as my wife and myself were victims of a guest trying to sell his positive review. We treated this family with the up most respect, island friendliness and most important 24 hour service. As we always do, we received the guests ourselves and did our local recommendations and reservations for the family in local restaurants, extra golf cart rental and beach clubs. We know we met their demands since our guest wife and mother were very happy and impressed with our community and villa. It is a pity that after they enjoyed our Villa ordering every extra amenity (extra golf carts to twice daily maid service) that we have to offer and had a great time in our beachside resort community they tried to avoid paying their bill by threatening our family with a bad review. (Sorry, we do not allow blackmail in Ville Cataline or Puerto Rico) Well, we are here and our past performance and future performance will prove them wrong. As for the name change of our Villa, we did it to honor our daughter and not to avoid reviews (guests who have stayed with us know we are stalkers of reviews, good or bad).
Even though our guests left us with a great unpaid bill with our local suppliers, we were happy to have them and learned greatly from this experience. Reviews good or bad make us learn on what details we missed and improve for our next guests. We were just sad that in this particular case it was money motivated and not done with the truth as the parameter.

EVERYTHING FOR EVERYONE! YOU WILL WANT TO STAY FOREVER...

  • 5 of 5
Everything during our stay at Ville Cataline was perfect! The House itself, very clean, well appointed furniture, beautiful kitchen, great patio and upstairs veranda, three large sized bedrooms each with its own spacious bathroom. There were four adults and two kids in our party and we had a wonderful time at the Villa. Highly recommend, awesome for a large family getaway. The owners could not have been any nicer or more accommodating. The Dorado Beach East grounds are simply gorgeous! Three golf courses, beaches, gorgeous pools and water mill park for kids of all ages, outstanding food at the various restaurants available. All this within the grounds, no need to ever leave or deal with the outside world. Impossible for anyone to get bored! A TRUE PARADISE GETAWAY!!! You will want to return again and again.
